Twill

Posted on by Janna Maria Vallee / Posted in Social Market for a Mirrix 2014, Tapestry Weaving | Leave a comment

twill weaving

Tonight I will block this twill weaving which as you can see has curled right up on itself.  I think that must be due to my having too much tension on the warp while weaving.  I’m really excited about this side of the weaving, so I think I’ll be doing a lot more twill weaving on my Mirrix in the future.  I liked it, but I wasn’t as excited about the side that was facing me while I wove.  Next time I’ll experiment with tension to avoid this much curl, too.  It’s kind of a nice object as is though, huh?  I like the blue-on-blue twill in the background.  It’s such a nice, subtle change from plain weave.

One More Holiday Deal…

Posted on by mirrixlooms / Posted in Deals | Tagged , , | Leave a comment

One of my favorite parts of the holiday season is talking to customers who are buying looms as gifts. Maybe it’s because a loom seems like such a thoughtful gift or because I secretly love feeling “in” on a surprise or because I can just imagine the joy of someone opening his or her very first loom. Or maybe it’s because people buying looms as gifts are almost always giddy at the prospect. Kind of like they know they just nailed the perfect gift. And, let’s face it, that’s a pretty great feeling.

Anyway, I’ve got a surprise for all you last-minute gift givers. For the next three days (through Wednesday, December 17th) we are giving 10% off our Mirrix Gift Certificate Package.

This isn’t just a gift certificate. It’s a gift certificate, beads, silk and a hand-written card all in a cute little white box with tissue paper. It’s easy and it’s a fantastic deal. When we were discussing this deal Claudia said, “People are going to buy this for themselves.” And yeah, that’s probably a good idea. Because you get 10% off the whole package and the silk and beads are already 30% off. Seriously, get this before we realize this deal is probably TOO good. But hey, we want those “It’s a Mirrix!” moments to be happening everywhere on December 25th. And December 16th- 24th. And on December 26th – January 1st. And other December holidays, of course.

We have a limited amount of these made and ready-to-ship. So go, run, and save…. Holiday 2014 Gift Certificate Package. Use code theperfectgift at checkout.

The Fine Print: Only ONE per customer. Only valid December 15th-17th, 2014. Cannot be combined with any other offer. Mirrix Looms has the right to alter, cancel or deny this deal.

Welcome to day three of Mirrix-days, where every day through the 12th we will have a deal on something in the Mirrix online store. From kits to accessories and weaving materials, this is the week to pick up stocking stuffers for yourself or the weaver in your life.

5mirrixdays3Today (December 10th) we are giving you $15 off our Crystal & Bead Wrap Bracelet Kit with code mirrixday3 at checkout. (See below for the fine print.)

This is one of Mirrix President Claudia’s favorite kits. It goes along with a fantastic online course she made for Craftartedu.com. The course costs $15 (exactly how much you’ll save on the kit) and will walk you through the basics of this great project. If you already know how to weave beads (and how to combine large and small beads and crystals), you can probably weave this without the course!

On Tapestry Warp

offwhite_polycotton_rugwarpBy Mirrix President Claudia Chase
I am often asked what kind of warp one should use for tapestry. I will try to provide a fairly broad answer to this question with the beginner tapestry weaver in mind. The sett for the yarns I will be recommending can range from 4 epi to 12 epi.
Basic Warp Options:
Inexpensive cotton carpet warp
Seine Twine
Linen
Wool
